Back from Walter Sisulu. It was lovely to finally meet up with Duco :D and see GP again.

Dave and Jan and the mouse all had a lovely time together. Sorry, no pictures :redface: :redface: I am not used to taking a camera with me, so I completely forgot that I had brought it with :redface:

We spoke and bonded again like long lost friends. :D I had a lovely meal wth some lovely company 8) I am really looking forward to meeting our two love birds again.

Noooo, Micetta.... six! 8)
I was there early this morning, found Dave, Jan, DQ and GP in the bird hide. DQ was doing what DQ does, peeping through a long lens and GP was just adding ticks to her life list. Dave and Jan were sporting the most beautiful Stiffnecks caps! :D

It was great to see them all again and to meet DQ for the first time.

MM........ I missed you....... :(

Jen, I am sorry that I missed you :(

I am sharing a car with my daughter at the moment and we have to negotiate at all times.

Great day had by all. Sorry no pics, other than birds. Duco has som super pics of the Black Eagles (sorry Vereauxs Eagles). They timed their flying display just as we got down by the waterfall.

Had a good walk around and a lovely lesurely time at the restaurant. We even met the rest of our family picnicing on the way out.

By the way the Stiffnecks caps are great :clap:

Best wishes to Duco and Sante on their life together in Holland. We will catch up with you in the future.
